OOTD 1.23.18: Black Ruffle Top

Black ruffle top and windowpane ruffles skirt

Blouse (in 3 colors!) | Windowpane Skirt (40% off in 3 colors!) | Classic Pumps | Gold Statement Necklace | Bar Earrings | iPhone Case for $20 | Bejewelled Popsocket

Accessories for walking to work:

Every girl NEEDS this black ruffle top! I am truly obsessed (and I try to rarely use that word). It’s one of those great tops that can be worn to the office but out on date night. The flirty sleeves make it appropriate for both. It also comes in white and coral!

One of the best ways to dress up and down this top is with different statement necklaces. This one is adjustable at a wide variety of lengths so it’s like 10 necklaces in one. It can be as short as a choker or a few inches longer than I’m wearing it here!

This skirt is another statement piece! I love the fun asymmetrical ruffle. Wearing office attire can get boring so pieces like this keep it exciting as well as stylish. I definitely had my girls who work in corporate offices in mind today! This skirt would be perfect with every black and white top! I’m wearing my regular size and it fits perfectly! The neutral colors also make it a great piece for spring! It’s also 40% off in 3 colors!

OOTD 1.22.18: Grey Moto Jacket

Suede Moto (new colors here) | Similar White Top | Faux Leather Leggings | Thermal Leggings | Black OTK Boots | NEW Marble Case | NEW Pop Socket

Getting a little edgy today!! This is one of my favorite outfits. It’s super comfortable and can be tweaked in so many ways. You can swap out almost every piece to give this look a new twist.

My grey moto jacket is old but I noticed that the same brand is 40% off in 2 colors. This is the “it” moto jacket that everyone always raves about! It’s truly that good. Good enough that I have it in 3 colors. If you’re looking for a piece for spring, get the pink. It runs true to size but if you have bigger arms, size up a size. Here are a few more grey options too!

This white tank I’m wearing is by Vince Camuto and has been such a closet staple that I just bought a really similar top with sleeves. It’s just one of those pieces that are great for both casual and professional wear. It can also be worn so many ways. It can be tucked into your bottoms but also left untucked. Above all, it’s definitely flattering!

These heeled over the knee boots are my favorite. They stay up really well and are better than Stuart Weitzmans in my opinion (I don’t like the Steve Madden ones because they feel cheap). My second option for boots are also 33% off! I love them and am debating whether I need them in another color. I have the heeled version which is 50% off in two colors (Havana and Foxy) already! They are super comfy! Just size up a half size!

I’m also wearing my thermal leggings under these faux leather moto leggings that you guys know I swear by. These things are legit the best! The thermal leggings underneath really make a difference too when I’m walking to work. I also wear them under dresses and skirts.

OOTD 1.19.18: Grey Flare Dress

grey flare dress

Marled Drop Waist Dress (50% off!) | Silver Statement Necklace | Similar Burgundy Pumps | | Bar Earrings | Marble iPhone Case | Grey Work Tote

Accessories for walking to work:

This grey flare dress is so fun! I love the drop waist and was surprised that it is still flattering! It’s such a fun knit texture too – it gives the look of this dress something else. It’s a really great shift shape so you can rest assured that it won’t be too tight for whatever office environment you are in. I love that LOFT calls this cut “flounce” – makes it seem so flirty and fun. And it is!

I’ve styled this dress with burgundy pumps but you could really wear any color shoe with this dress since it’s a neutral. If you are looking to create a different look, you could also do over the knee boots. The dress isn’t so tight that doing OTK boots would end up looking unprofessional in my opinion.
